Sgt. Shane Jones, heavy wheeled vehicle operator, Company A, 10th Brigade Support Battalion, 1st Brigade, 10th Mountain Division, guides a plane to the runway at Forward Operating Base Ghazni, Afghanistan, for an air delivery, Aug. 8, 2013. Low-cost, low-altitude drops began at the base in late May 2013, replacing ground convoys as the primary delivery method to Ghazni. Using air rather than ground transportation for supply delivery increases efficiency and helps keep Soldiers off the road and out of harm's way.
